The smell was initially like opening a jar of candied pitted olives and cherries in sweet sherry. The cherry theme continued with cherry Bakewell tarts, cherry lips and fizzy cherry cola bottle sweets. The taste was something special; raisin concentrate, fig syrup and prunes in a sweet dark bitter chocolate sauce. Water added sticky toffee pudding and spiced poached pears in chocolate sauce before we washed it all down with a Kalimotxo cocktail - red wine and cola sangria spritzer. In 2018 we combined selected oloroso butts before returning the single malt to a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
